While abroad, International SOS is MIT’s key point of contact in the event of an emergency, especially if you are uncertain of the reliability of local emergency services.
- In case of medical emergency, seek care at the nearest medical facility. If you do not know where this is, or if follow-up and support services are needed, contact ISOS.
- In a natural disaster (both pre/post event) or a political type of event, such as civil unrest or a terrorist attack, contact ISOS immediately.
- In a criminal event, such as assault or robbery, contact ISOS. They will assist in providing further direction on contacting local resources.
You can call ISOS collect 24 hours a day for any medical, safety, or well-being concerns:

The U.S. Department of State (DoS) also provides resources for U.S. citizens who become victims of crime while abroad. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you can check resources with your embassy in the country you are visiting.
